Missed Opportunity

As I note below in a previous blog post, it just seems incredible that nobody has apparently ever publicly asked Rudy Giuliani why he is personally opposed to abortion.

Conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt had the chance to do this recently when he interviewed Giuliani and posed the question of abortion rights to him. After Giuliani did his usual song and tap dance about being personally opposed to abortion but believing pregnant women should have the right to choose it, Hewitt pretty much dropped the ball there and moved on to a whole different subject. Most disappointing to say the least.

One other thing about the aforementioned interview. When Giuliani disclosed that he had seriously considered the priesthood as a young man, but decided not to pursue it because of the vow of celibacy he would have been required to take, Hewitt responded by saying "Ah, good argument." What the hell is that supposed to mean?!

Surely, Someone Must Have Asked

I keep reading these comments from Rudy Guiliani saying that he personally opposes abortion, but thinks it should be legal for a pregnant woman to decide for herself whether to have one.

Has nobody publicly asked Rudy why he personally opposes abortion? If Giuliani opposes it because he believes the unborn child is a human being, then he will have to explain why it should be legal to allow said human being to be killed for absolutely no legitimate purpose.
A Wide Open GOP Convention in '08

As speculated by Doug Patton in Human Events, a conservative publication we've been told by a certain snotty Catholic apologist, is all on board with Giuliani simply because it ran a pro-Giuliani column by a libertarian leaning commentator named Deroy Murdock. By itself it's an idiotic assertion, made more so by the fact that just last week Human Events published another Doug Patton column which argued that selecting Giuliani as the GOP presidential nominee would kill the pro-life movement (in the Republican Party*).

Google Power

Interesting. In tracking all the visits I get to this blog, I've noticed that most of them come from Google searches rather than the much appreciated link listings I get from fellow Catholic bloggers.

Kind of a meandering thought for this Easter, but I'm still preoccupied over how I managed to lose a five dollar bill in my pocket this past Friday. Lesson learned: Don't keep a bunch of loose dollars in your pocket.
